A Sermon to Remember

Ex20:8, Rm5:6-11, 1Cor:11:23-28

Intro. I heard about a guy named John who had a serious memory problem. One day John ran into a friend he had not seen in a long time. He greeted him & said, “Bill, do you remember what a bad memory I had?”

Bill answered, “Yes, I certainly do.” “Well, it’s not bad any more. I went to a seminar that taught us how to remember things. It was great, & now I have a wonderful memory.

Bill answered, “That’s great! What was the name of the seminar?” “Well,” John said, “wait a minute, my wife went with me. I’ll ask her.” He turned & saw his wife nearby.

Then he turned back to Bill & said, “What’s the name of that flower with a long stem & thorns & a red bloom?” “Do you mean a rose?” Bill answered. “Yeah, thanks,” John said. “Hey, Rose, what’s the name of that seminar we attended?”

. There are some things we need to remember aren’t they? Especially our spouses name.

. Today is the Sunday before Memorial Day. Tomorrow is the day set aside for remembrance?

. The day we remember those who fought and died so that we can have the freedom to sit here this morning and worship the one true God.

. The roots of Memorial Day go all the way back to the civil war

. It started with the practice of placing flowers on military graves. In the beginning it was called decoration day.

. After WW1 it became the national holiday we know as Memorial Day. This day is dedicated to the fallen heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms.

. How many here have lost loved ones in the service of our country.

. How many here have served in our military forces in protection of our way of life.

. We thank you today for either your or your loved ones sacrifices.

. As I was reading and studying for today’s sermon, God impressed upon me that not only is Memorial day a day to remember heroes but that this Sunday would be a great day for us to remember some of the things God has instructed us to remember in His Word.

. There are many things that God has told us to remember.

. One of my favorite things that God told us to remember is the rainbow.

. We remember the story of how God destroyed the inhabitants of the earth with a flood.

. He destroyed everyone except Noah and his family and two of each kind of animal.

. After the flood waters had receded God told Noah and his family that He would never again destroy the earth with water.

. God then said something unique. While we see the rainbow as a reminder of the flood and God’s promise, this rainbow is also a reminder to God that He made this promise.

. In genesis 14-16 God told Noah: When I send clouds over the earth, the rainbow will appear in the clouds,15and I will remember my covenant with you and with all living creatures. Never again will the floodwaters destroy all life.16When I see the rainbow in the clouds, I will remember the ieternal covenant between God and every living creature on earth.
